TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – FOR THE CROWN

Tone Chop and Frost Gamble team up again for more of a melancholy project. You can definitely tell that Tone was going through some things on this one. As listeners, we are not 100% sure what was up, but we wish him the best with his healing journey. His rhymes are still tough, but they definitely “let you in” a little bit more on this project. Frost Gamble does another good job on the beats. He does a great job of matching Tone’s energy which is what a great producer does. It’s a quick 7 track journey but, it’s another brick on the house that they are building together.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – ONE TWO

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble link up again to hit the competition right in the face with some more boom bap rap. Tone Chop keeps delivering “Punch You In The Face Raps” just as one of the song titles suggests. He is seasoned and powerful as he continues his lyrical assault on any whack MCs in the game. Frost Gamble takes a slightly different approach on the boards with some scaled back, but still dope beats for Tone to rock over. These two definitely keep it true to real hip hop and they have a great chemistry. Time after time, they are definitely creating quality music for hip hop purists to revel in.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – UNDERESTIMATED

Tone Chop once again links up with Frost Gamble and the two create another banger. This one is pretty short at only 7 tracks, but they go hard on each one. Even though each song is roughly about 2 or so minutes long, they definitely pack a punch. On the mic, Tone Chop does what he does best. He spits hard rhymes with no apologies. On the boards, Frost Gamble gives us some great drums, piercing horns, and an all around great sound with a bit of an old school twist mixed in. These two together are always able to create magic and they have done it yet again with this new release.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – BIRD & MCHALE

Tone Chop and Frost Gamble link up for another dope album. This time they team up as the legendary Larry Bird and Kevin HcHale from the Boston Celtics in their glory days. The album is pretty much on the same skill level. To start off, Frost Gamble is super dope on the boards. The beats he comes up with are definitely slamming and it seems like he is getting better and better. Whether he is flipping classic beats like on “Legendary Corny” or just giving us dope samples like “Jumping II,” he is definitely smashing it on every beat. Tone Chop complements it perfectly and definitely is tough on the mic. When Frost sets him up, Chop slam dunks it. These 2 definitely work together well and you are always going to be pleased by the outcome.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – FOURSIGHT EP

Tone Chop and Frost Gamble turn right around and give us another 4 tracks to sink our teeth into. This one follows suit just as the previous EP. Tone Chop’s bars are very focused and very ferocious, especially on the first track “Troublesome.” Frost Gamble does another great job on the beats with his highlight being “The Best.” These two are definitely a great team and it is always a pleasure to hear what they can cook up.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – 5 ALARM BLAZE

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble team up again for a quick 5 track EP. Even though it is short, it definitely packs the heat. Tone Chop comes off very skilled and very lyrical on this one. It sounds like he is getting better and sharper especially with bars like the ones on “Raising The Bar.” Frost Gamble handles the production and does another great job on the boards. There are some great drum and vocal samples and he always seems to know the right sound for Tone Chop to flow over. This is a very short but strong project and real hip hop heads will definitely dig it.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – KILL OR BE KILLED

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble team up once again to do what they do best which is murder all you whack rappers and producers. Although this new project is only a quick 7 track listen, they have one goal in mind and it is to slaughter the competition. It is evidenced from the first song which is the title track. Tone Chop was waiting in the waters like a patient shark ready to strike and tear through the competition with his bars. You can definitely hear the Kool G Rap influence in him. He is hungry and won’t be beaten. Frost Gamble shines on the boards as always and comes up with some fantastic boom bap beats for your ear drums to appreciate. They kill it every time so it is no surprise that they did it once again. Very good job on this one.

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble - Kill Or Be Killed

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – 4 THE LOVE EP

Tone Chop and Frost Gamble join forces yet again for a quick 4 track EP. This was a pretty dope release that serves as a teaser for their upcoming project Kill Or Be Killed. Even though this current EP is only 4 tracks, you still get hard rhymes and dope beats for the hip-hop purists. It was especially dope to hear Tone Chop rhyme over a Kool G Rap classic with “100 Percent (It’s A Demo).” It’s just one of those tracks that sounds like he belonged over top of that beat. This is a quick and strong release and we definitely can’t wait for the next project to arrive.

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble - 4 The Love EP

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – ONE

The dynamic duo team up again to bring another super dope album straight to our eardrums. Consistency and delivery is what these two bring every single time without fail. Tone Chop raps like he is Thor’s hammer dropping hard bars right on the tops of whack MCs heads. His direct and gritty rhymes are like a punch right through the chest. With Frost Gamble on the beats, he is always serving up dope samples and hard drums and kicks. Basically these two can never miss a shot. It’s great to have huge wins but consistency is what wins over time and these two have found that recipe. The highlights for me include the first track “Battle’s Just Begun.” This song just sets the tone for the album. “The Epitome” and “Respect Your Jaw” are also very strong tracks. To be honest, most of the MCs and producers out there today aren’t messing with Tone Chop and Frost Gamble. Cop this one with the quickness.

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – RESPECT IS EARNED NOT GIVEN

Tone Chop is back with another fantastic project called “Respect Is Earned Not Given.” He has teamed up with the genius producer Frost Gamble to create a slamming piece of work here. Lyrically, Tone is definitely on point and bringing those hard and tough street bars as he does so well. The best way to describe it would be if you imagine an enormous grizzly bear coming to maul any whack rappers in the way. That is what Tone does effortlessly on this project. Frost Gamble does another great job providing the backdrop to this album. There are some awesome samples over some great bass lines and drum tracks. Another great part of this album that really stands out is how well the songs are woven together. This is a very cohesive project that sounds like all tracks go in order and are meant to be together. There are some great song concepts and stories on here. “Bing Stories” definitely stands out as a great story. “Walk The Walk” is a fantastic song that features the OG Kool G Rap. I’d have to say my favorite track is probably “In The Streets” featuring DNA. The beat is slamming and Tone and DNA definitely trade clever rhymes. If you are a hardcore hip-hop head, this is a must have project.

Tone Chop & Frost Gamble

TONE CHOP & FROST GAMBLE – VETERAN EP

This was a very dope release from a rapper that I was not previously familiar with. Tone Chop has created a slamming EP with production by Frost Gamble. This quick project is solid and gives the listener everything they need. The project starts out with a quick tribute to all the great rappers of the past called “Dedication.” From there, it goes on with track after track of hard, boom-bap production and clever samples. I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised with this release. This is the type of rap that we need more of out there. The lyrics might not be the most complex I have ever heard but they are real enough to get the points across and clever enough to go toe-to-toe with most rappers. The beats are slamming and something you can bump while you are cruising to your destination. I’d say this is a must have for independent rap fans out there. This is how you make  a quality project.
